2015 Robert Mondavi Winery Sauvignon Blanc Stags Leap District Napa Valley
This Stags Leap Sauvignon Blanc expresses a purity and persistence of flavor with juicy Asian pear, honeydew melon, and zesty citrus converging on the rich yet refreshingly bright palate.
100% Sauvignon Blanc
2015 started warmer and drier than usual, without a drop of rain in January. The dry conditions continued well into April with some early irrigation in the vineyards. A cooler May reduced fruit set and provided the first signs of a lighter crop for the vintage. The harvest brought in fruit at optimal flavor maturity before a series of heat waves hit the valley. Overall, the 2015 harvest is one of the earliest on record. The grapes for our fragrantly expressive Stags Leap District Sauvignon Blanc were picked between August 18th and August 24th.
